We enjoyed lunch here twice this week ! Bouchon is worthy of its Michelin Star. There are many highly regarded restaurants in the Napa Valley, but few compare to Bouchon.

I started with a consommé of tomato which was just added to the menu. Never had anything like it. My wife had the Trout Almondine which was perfectly prepared.

A very good wine list including French whites which pair well with the fish and rawbar menus.

Bouchon is one of Napa's hidden gems. Located in beautiful Yountville, just a few minutes from Napa-proper, Bouchon serves delicious French-inspired food and drinks - perfect for a special occasion or a night out with someone special. The dining area isn't huge but it still feels private and romantic, even when it's busy. The staff is friendly, knowledgable and accommodating. I've been here many times and I have always been pleased with my experience.

Everything there was outstanding, from the service to the food. Best of all for a wine collector like me is that the som didn’t try to upsell me but, rather, selected the best bottle for what we were eating. His recommendations were perfect!

Excellent food and service! My husband had the pork belly which was a special the night we ate there. It was absolutely one of the best things either one of us has ever eaten. Qualifying both since I kept “tasting” his dish.
I had the steak frites which was also very good and ended with the prettiest sundae which included raspberry sorbet and peaches. If you are in the Napa region don’t miss this restaurant.

Over the top and not very genuine service staff. They were quite attentive, but left us feeling like they had a chip on their shoulder.
The food was quite tasty, but far overpriced, and required some explanation in order to properly enjoy.

I made reservations and we still had to wait to get a table, which was outside (we weren't asked if outdoor seating was acceptable), the lighting was pretty much non-existent and I got bug bites. When I asked the hostess about an indoor table, she walked off and never came back to let me know or check on us. The food was mediocre (I seriously can't even remember what the desert was like and the deviled eggs were extremely salty but the bread was good), the service was very poor--I really wish I had not left any tip. Very disappointed with the whole experience, the only time we received prompt service was getting the bill paid with the server hovering to get my credit card. If this restaurant truly has a Michelin star it needs to be removed. I would never recommend this place to family/friends.

My only criticism is that you sit pretty tightly next to other couples

so it’s not necessarily the place to get engaged or have a intimate conversation

I believe this is one of the best restaurants but not tonight. Terrible service and food. We sat outside, big mistake. We must of had the new servers with no experience. Took forever to get served and each meal came out separate. My steak was cooked good but over salted. The fries were dried and overdone. The tuna had not seasoning or flavor. I really don’t know what happened. What happened? This is unacceptable for a Thomas Keller restaurant. Shameful, probably will never go back.

Very good experience, highly recommended! We visited Bouchon for brunch and the service was exceptional. The steak and fries were out of this world, and the recommended wine was the perfect choice. Bouchon is expensive and worth it! The crab risotto was the only disappointment. The corn and the crab were too sweet, even though the rice was cooked to perfection. Bouchon is noisy and very busy because it's that good. The bread is exceptional, so plan on taking some home.

Dinner was somewhat disappointing due to below average service. The food was good, but didn’t deserve the 1 Michelin Star rating. The food was standard French bistro fare that you can find anywhere. We had the tomato and burrata salad, which was good, but the cores of the tomatoes weren’t cut out. The French onion soup was good, but not the best. The truffle risotto special was good. The mussels were disappointing. About 1/3 of the mussels didn’t open in the cooking process, but were still served to us. You would think with having a 1 Michelin Star rating, quality control would be more important and those mussels wouldn’t be served.

We dined the previous night at Bistro Jeanty and felt that the dinner and overall experience there was better.

Overall Bouchon is a decent enough place but compared to the variety of other superb places (including other highly Michelin rated places) in Yountville it’s only fair. The bread is incredible as is the Onion Soup, though given how rich the soup is the portion size was a bit large. The Croque Madame was rather bland as were the truffle fries that went with it. The fish we had was also one dimensional flavor wise. However everything was cooked perfectly and the service was great.

Last minute we decided to drive to Yountville from Napa to have an early dinner at Bouchon. It was DELICIOUS. We had the gnudi with truffles (a special) at the recommendation of our server. It was amazing. I wish I could remember our server's name. He was excellent and even gave us some ideas of things to do later on our trip. We sat outside and the setting was perfect. Don't miss Bouchon while you are in wine country!
